One of the first 2-in-1's on Baytrail architecture. It's a lightweight product with a very usable tablet section. With the price at $345 (32GB at launch. $399 for 64GB storage) it could be a very attractive and highly dynamic tablet/PC combo.

ASUS T100 Alternatives

Based on weight, screen-size and form-factor.
Dell Venue 10 7000 Series, 10.5 inch, 597 grams (1.32 lbs)
Dell's Venue 10 7000 series Android tablet is similar in looks to Lenovo's Yoga Tablet 2 series but without the kickstand, it comes with a high resolution 2560x1600 display, 2GB RAM, 16GB storage and an Atom Z3580 processor with of course Dell's options for customising and upgrading. The keyboard (466 grams) is probably a necessary extra so that a tent mode can be used, the docking system uses latches and magnets. It's a very good mobile laptop-like Android computer but if you'll need quite a bit more capacity if you're a photographer, you can use up to 512GB SD cards though.
Asus Transformer Book T100HA, 10.1 inch, 580 grams (1.28 lbs)
Asus have updated the T100 to the Transformer Book T100HA with a Cherry Trail processor, the Atom x5-Z8500, and 4GB RAM and an options for 64 or 128GB storage which will be a relief for those who start using a small mobile device as a desktop. It has a 1280 x 800 pixel resolution 10.1 inch screen but ultra light weight and huge (claimed) battery of life of 14 hours and a USB-C port as well. Slight case design changes include a metal rear and re-worked tablet docking mechanism. The Transformer Book T100HA looks like it's going to be as popular as the previous models were.
Lenovo Thinkpad 10 ( 2015), 10.1 inch, 617 grams (1.36 lbs)
Announced near the end of May, the headline for the Lenovo Thinkpad 10 is it's the first identified with Windows 10. Promoted as a business ready 10.1" tablet with full PC experience with the latest Atom Cherry Trail CPU it's very light at 617 grams and also versatile in that it adapts for work, home, or mobile use, by having usage modes such as laptop, desktop, tablet, or in a stand mode. Notable optional extras are a digitizer pen and a 4G LTE module. The inference from the TechRadar.com hands-on is that it is not fanless - in comparing with a competitor the Dell 11 Pro 7000 series (7140 I guess)
Acer Aspire Switch 10 E, 10.1 inch, 630 grams (1.39 lbs)
The 2015 Acer Aspire Switch 10 is the colourful, light and low priced Aspire Switch 10 E with a freshly designed Snap Hinge 2. We're waiting for the full specifications to be confirmed but this is what we have so far. Let us know what you think in the comments below.
Acer Aspire Switch 10 2015, 10.1 inch, 595 grams (1.31 lbs)
The Acer Switch 10 (SW5-015) is refreshed for 2015 but not by much. There's a new Gorilla Glass rear on the screen, an improved hinge mechanism. Acer haven't yet revealed the processor so we're expecting an update to Atom X5 or X7 there.
Lenovo Miix 3 10, 10.1 inch, 549 grams (1.21 lbs)
The Lenovo MIIX 3-1030 is the model with the soft case / keyboard. There appears to be a different model which includes a hard keyboard as the Miix 2 10 did. Lenovo are pitching the Miix 3 10 at a slightly lower pricepoint to the previous Miix 2 10 but it still includes a Full HD display. There's no full-size USB port and no compass though. We expect pricing to drop a little below the $299/?299 RRP so watch out for offers.
MSI S100, 10.1 inch, 595 grams (1.31 lbs)
This lightweight 2-in-1 offers good storage for the price but a low resolution screen. The MSI S100 has 6 hours battery life and a good selection of ports for the price and includes a 1-year Office 365 / 1TB One Drive license. Portable and capable of more than a standalone tablet out-of-the-box.
ASUS Transformer Book T100 Chi, 10.1 inch, 570 grams (1.26 lbs)
The ASUS Transformer Book T100 Chi is a dockable tablet based on Intel's Baytrail Atom Z3775 processor. It comes with a keyboard dock for a better writing experience. Built-in storage comes in two flavours, either 32 or 64 GB of eMMC, however you get one year of 1TB OneDrive Storage. The 30Wh battery has a proclaimed runtime of up to 10 hours. In terms of ports it offers a microUSB 3.0, a microUSB 2.0, MicroHDMI and a microSD card slot.
Toshiba Satellite Click Mini, 8.9 inch, 450 grams (0.99 lbs)
The Toshiba Satellite Click Mini offers a lot of battery life and screen resolution for the money and unlike the ASUS Transformer Book T90 Chi (also launched at CES 2015) has an SD card slot and USB port in the keyboard and an HDMI output on the tablet. With a quoted 16 hours of video playback time this could be the long-distance travellers dream come true.
HP Pavilion X2 10, 10.1 inch, 550 grams (1.21 lbs)
The HP Pavilion X2 10 is a Windows 8.1 dockable tablet running on Intels energy efficient Atom Z3736F processor, allowing for a fanless design. 550g for the tablet and 870g combined with the keyboard isn't too bad at all. Unfortunately HP left out the 5GHz spectrum for the WiFi functionalities, so b/g/n is what you are limited to with the Pavilion X2 10. The detachable keyboard also features a multitouch touchpad for accurate navigation.
